5.0 out of 5 stars Be careful when buying GBA games March 21, 2014
By Kell
Verified Purchase
Whether you are the person playing these games or buying a gift, you need to know! There is a large market of FAKEs out there. you can guarentee you're buying a fake unless you buy from a seller who has a history of selling legitimate copies. (Like CMA gaming) If you buy these games from new sellers or sellers who have not sold GBA games before it is possible you will receive a FAKE.
Where ever these fakes originate from (mostly hong kong) they have thoroughly invaded our retro markets here in america. Some boot legs are so convincing that even retail stores like console game exchange have been fooled and accidently sold bootlegs before they understood that these cartridges were fake. Let me explain a few things about GBA cartridges:

These games have been out of print for, in many cases, a decade. The cartridge should not look new unless you're buying a $400 factory sealed copy. (in which case, how dare you remove it from the casing). Legitimate copies are becoming increasingly hard to come by, so expect to pay $40 dollars for a cartridge that looks beat-up.

Quickest way to spot a fake is a brand new label. you may have come across a mint copy, but please, take a closer look! (for emerald, ruby and sapphire) is the label metallic? are there four embossed letters near the top right? is the ESRB rating skewed or the wrong font? Is the nintendo seal of approval crisp and clear? Look inside the cartridge (at the bottom, don't take it apart) can you read "2002 nintendo" clearly on the chip itself? Is the plastic of the cartridge the same color as the label? is it translucent? flip the cartridge over, is the screw a phillips head or a Y shape?
If you answered no to any of these, you could have a fake copy!

From the right seller this is an amazing game that you can play over and over again. Just beware of fakes!
I use CMA Games and they are legit. Even have new batteries in their games so you get berries and timed events!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake Game! DO NOT BUY! August 26, 2013
By Takumi
Verified Purchase
I just recently received my copy of "pokemon emerald" which is clearly a fake. I loaded the game onto my DS lite and upon start up I received the following messages: The save file will be loaded. The game can be played. I have played a legit version of Pokemon Emerald before (and every other pokemon game out there) and have NEVER received this message before.
Gameplay: The game did play like a real version until I saved the game which cut out the audio while saving and eventually the second time I did try to save it, the game became corrupted and froze and now no longer will read on my DS. Total playtime: 2 hours
Also noted the picture displayed for the product is a fake. Here is a website depicting real legit copies of the game included with pictures
Thank You and please do not lose out on a bunch of money like I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars beware of fakes November 23, 2013
By merc
I ordered this so I could trade between the games. It arrived within the time posted but in an unusual package. So i opened it and started playing it on my gameboy, it had a hard time getting into the slot and thats where everything began. I played for a few hours and realized that this was a fake copy. the first gyms trainer had a level 10 ziggagoon that knew surf and there are so many other inaccuracy to name.

I would recommend buying this game at a convention or at a used games store, if you buy it online make sure to check what the fake version looks like compared to the real one.

Also if you trade ANY pokemon from the fake version it will destroy the other game,

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake February 22, 2014

I bought this a couple months back with the hopes of playing through then migrating forward to Soul Silver; but it cannot migrate and save files corrupt. If you open it up it is clearly a fake. Do not buy and shame on this seller.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy. September 26, 2014
By Katie

When i buy an item that says 'fully functional' in the description, i expect it to arrive fully functional, not with the "save file cant be loaded" message. The shipping was nice and fast though, and it came with a little case. But still, not worth it.

2.0 out of 5 stars this game is a bootleg August 21, 2013
By Kristin
Verified Purchase
The game looks real and for the most part functions like a legit copy, but I did my research and I am positive this game is a bootleg.
First, the save function is spotty, the sound and picture get messed up when the game saves. This has not yet effected how the game saves, however does it freaks me out.
Second, when I tried to trade some pokemon, I lost the pokemon that were being traded to me. Everything went fine when until I turned the game off and restarted it. When the game came back on I no longer had the pokemon that were traded to me, but I was stuck with the pokemon I had before the trade. So now there are 2 identical copies of the pokemon I wanted to trade. One in my game, and the other in my ruby version. This made me furious. When I google it, the internet told me that it is risky to battle/trade between bootleg games.
Third, on all pokemon game cartridges, Nintendo imprints a set of letters/numbers on the sticker label of their legit games. This copy did not have that. Aside from that though, this game looks like the real deal from the outside. I am disappointed that it is fake. But I have learned my lesson not to buy games from Asia and will do my best to prevent other people from making the same mistake.
